Women, health and ageing: Findings from the Australian Longitudinal Study on Women’s Health

This report focuses on the health of older women from the Australian Longitudinal Study on Women‘s Health (ALSWH).

The ALSWH first collected data in 1996, from three cohorts of women then aged 18-23, 45-50 and 70-75. While some descriptive information concerning trends in health from all cohorts is included in the current report, the focus of analyses is on data collected from the oldest cohort, who were born 1921-26.
